The Lincolnshire Community Equipment Service (LCES) can provide equipment for you to use in your own home, to help you remain as independent as possible. Equipment can be provided for people of all ages including children with disabilities.
The equipment that LCES provide can be simple equipment such as walking frames and crutches to aid mobility. LCES can also provide more complex equipment such as beds, mobile hoists, and pressure care equipment.
To speak with someone about your equipment needs call the Lincolnshire County Council Customer Service Centre on 01522 782155.
You may be required to pay for equipment from LCES; this will depend on your individual needs and situation. More information is available on the Lincolnshire County Council Adult Care webpages regarding Adult Care Assessment and Eligibility.
